A True Divers Watch

Posted in Science and Time Keeping, Watches with tags , , , , , on January 29, 2013 by chronoshieldwatches

 

Good day watch fans. Oris announced earlier this month the arrival of the Aquis Depth Gauge. Oris’ engineers have applied the Boyle Marriotte Law to this dive watch. The law states if the volume of a gas is decreased, the pressure increases. Ok, if you didn’t do that well in science you’re not alone. So let’s make it simple. Oris has an opening in the crystal of the dial at the 12 o’clock spot that lets water into a channel that runs along the edge of the watches dial, which shows up light or dark grey. That light or dark grey channel corresponds with the scale indicating the depth on your decent or ascent. This dive watch is the perfect companion for both the professional and recreational diver. Oris has not yet indicated when it will be available for purchase, but rest assured Chrono Shield Watches will keep you posted.

A New Year Equals New Watches

Good day and Happy New Year watch world. I know that’s a little late. I’ve been away for a while. It seems 2013 has already produced an explosion of innovation, ingenuity and down right coolness when it comes to men’s watches. Let’s tally it all up. Jaeger LeCoultre has a new Deep Sea Chronograph Cermet. Kobold Watch Co. has gone on a spiritual journey & produced the Himalaya Deity Edition. IWC has fused analog & digital into one watch with the Ingenieur Perpetual Calendar Digital Date-Month timepiece. Luminox continues to soldier on with the Nav SPC( Navigation Specialist), a new model from their RECON series along with the Steel Color Mark Chronograph 3180 series.I’m excited to see what else 2013 has in store in the world of horology.

Calculating Above The Clouds

Good day watch world. I’ve recently started learning how to use a pilot’s watch with the calculator printed on a rotating bezel. If history is correct, Charles Lindbergh used his watch to keep track of fuel consumption while flying around the world. During WW 2 the demand for Swiss watch makers to produce watches for pilots sky rocketed. I don’t have the technique down pact yet, but I’ll get there. Watches equipped with a calculator on the bezel can be used to convert miles to kilometers, dollars to whatever currency  is needed in whatever country you’re in. As well as fuel consumption. I’ll do another blog explaining the ends and outs. Every watch company today has produced its own piece with a calculator on the bezel. Brietling, IWC, Casio Edifice, Oris, Bremont, Citizen, Seiko, you name it.

Can’t Live Without My Chronograph

Posted in Science and Time Keeping, Watches with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 14, 2012 by chronoshieldwatches

In today’s fast paced environment, we may find ourselves constantly multi-tasking. This habit even applies to time keeping. It doesn’t matter if you’re behind a desk, in a cockpit, playing spy vs. spy, climbing a mountain, chasing bad guys, diving to find Nemo or having a romantic dinner. Having a chronograph watch on your wrist always comes in handy. I’m personally addicted to chronograph time-pieces. From Casio to Audemars Piguet and everything in between. If it’s a chronograph, it gets my attention. My eyes light up even more if you add instruments like tachymeters( measures speed), telemeters( measures speed of sound for phenomenons like thunder & lightning). Oh, and don’t add a compass rose on a rotating bezel! I can’t live without my chronograph.
